PART # 004-001
If you are a vehicle-supported adventurer, this InfoBook was written for you. While off-roading or overlanding, you will at some point need to raise your vehicle for one or more of the following reasons: • Change to your spare tire • Repair a tire – plug a puncture, re-seat a bead, or conduct a major tire repair • Place a bridging ladder or traction mat under a tire • Repair a suspension, steering, driveline, or other underbody component • Elevate the vehicle’s frame or axle assembly off a rock, log, or ridge when high-centered • Elevate a small vehicle to move it laterally on a trail • Rotate your tires in the backcountry on a long overland journey When off-roading or overlanding on soft and uneven challenging terrain, raising a heavy 4WD vehicle that has a suspension lift and larger tires can be very risky. Truth is, it can be downright dangerous. There are lethal forces at work when lifting a heavy vehicle on any off-road terrain. Read this book and learn how to raise your vehicle correctly with the right jacks, tools, and accessories. This InfoBook also covers the topic of in-field tire repair. Whether you are a seasoned off-roader or new to vehicle-supported adventures, your chances of having a tire problem in the remote backcountry are good. It’s not a matter of if you will have tire problems off road, but when. Read this book and prepare for the day you damage more than one tire in the backcountry.
